Interests

I like TRAVEL BACKPACKING, Backpacking for me is a real true ADVENTURE... It is one of the great EXPERIENCE in LIFE. I Like meeting new people, learn NEW CULTURES, WALKING to myself FIT, hehehehe. Other than that, ARCHITECTURE is my another interest. I want to design for everyone... BE SUSTAINABLE to the ENVIRONMENT. I start to have interest with PHOTOGRAPHY.

Music, Movies & Books

Movies: Titanic (one of my FAV), Moulin Rouge, Evening, Shall We Dance, The Sleeping Dictionary (Jessica Alba in it and was film in SARAWAK) and the list go on and on :)

Music: Josh Groban (big fan), Movie OST (Evening, Titanic, etc), Christina Aguilera, hmmm... i think listen to nearly all kind of music EXCEPT for the TOO NOISY ONEs.... understand what i mean :P

Books: Architecture of course! and not forget.... LONELY PLANET travel guides (like a BIBLE to me... had LP for Malaysia, Bali and LP PDF for Cambodia & Vietnam)

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Backpacking by my OWN at such a quite young age!!! 98% of my friends, course mates are not so keen of backpacking at my age... THEY prefer TOUR and shopping... :( and fall in love when it can be done later (just a personal opinion)

Cycling from KUTA to TANAH LOT, Bali. The weather was DAMN HOT that day, and route to Tanah Lot was quite hilly especially the part where a lot of paddy plant... nearly HALF DEAD but i ENJOYED IT very much!!! hahahahahaha! Met a nice family on the way there... It is one of the SILLY AMAZING THING that i ever done.

Teach, Learn, Share

Maybe i can help to design your DREAM HOUSE :)
